Pleasantonweekly needs to write better news story that answers what, when, where, and why. The article mentioned about the Shell Gas station in Dublin, but which location?

5 feet, 3 inches?

Should have given him candy rather than money.

If somebody like this demanding money I'd turn a few bucks right quick!

The ironic thing about that shell station, is I typically see a motorcycle cop sitting and waiting to catch traffic violators. (They actually give a lot of tickets)

I suppose the officer was either giving a ticket at the time, or no one was manning the post.
